New YouTube Postings

Over the weekend, I posted three videos on YouTube.  These were taken with my Nikon D90 in video mode, which was a handy feature but not as easy to use as a minicam.  These are raw, unedited, and without any added music.  The camera can record up to 5 minutes in high resolution, but without a tripod, it gets heavy very fast.  Another downside, the camera can not refocus as you pan the camera.  There is just no substitute for a real minicam.  

Here is the view from our five deck cabin porthole on our Farewell to the UK cruise.  Call me crazy, but I just loved this cabin, located down low and above the engines.  In addition, while in several ports, the gangplank was only several cabins away down the passageway.

The second short video is of Queen Elizabeth 2 backing out of her berth at the Manhattan pier for the final time.

The third video, which I'd love to somehow rig up as a screen saver, is a bow view of QE2 on a spectacular day, which happened to be my final full day onboard.
